Due Diligence and References
The reference checking and due diligence services of Croghan & Associates are of great benefit to an organization. It is a demanding task for a firm to spend time interviewing references, confirming education, reviewing credit reports, and conducting criminal and background screening. We provide you with a comprehensive and detailed report that includes all five elements. Our reference checking services are objective and impartial. The interviewer does not have any preconceived impressions of the candidate and will develop a clear profile of how the reference perceives the individual you will potentially hire. By using the services of our firm, you establish a consistent process for screening employees for your recording keeping purposes. This consistency also guarantees that this essential part of the process is not forgotten or bypassed as a result of time constraints.
We provide you with a detailed report that consists of an exhaustive interview that will illustrate the strengths of the individual and areas of further development of the potential employee. We not only record statements and feedback by the referee but we also ask them to provide specific examples of a time in which the employee performed those tasks, skill etc. in the workplace. Using the services of a third party reference checking service ensures that a high standard of due diligence is achieved, subsequently reducing the risk of wrongful hiring or discrimination litigation.We set a very high standard at Croghan & Associates and have conducted quality employee screening for over 15 years.
